    Mirembe’s Story

    “My father is George and my mom is Jane.  I have seven brothers and sisters who I love very much.  We live in a village in Njeru, Uganda.  My father is a school teacher and my mother takes care of us children.  I go to school and study sometimes but other times I cannot.  All of us children want to attend school but my father makes very little money and sometimes they do not pay him.  It is difficult for my parents to buy food for us all and school fees cost so much.  I dream that someday I can continue to go to school and be a nurse when I am older”.

    Now a part of the PFP Juniors program, Mirembe attends a highly ranked primary school. She has big dreams to become a nurse someday because she says “she will save the lives of people and it will help me to have a better life”.  While PFP supports her with education and medical expenses, Mirembe continues to live with her parents, who she loves very much. Her mom and dad work hand in hand with PFP and are proud to play a role in supporting Mirembe in being able to attend school.
